Provincial Travel restrictions
Parks and Rec Site Closures
In addition, there is an access concern about illegal camping:
From the Squamish Access Society website:
District of Squamish provides the following guidance on its website: “Camping is not allowed on District or private property, unless the property is zoned specifically for that purpose. Crown land does not fall under this restriction, however within District of Squamish municipal boundaries, District bylaws do apply to open fires, littering, wildlife attractants, noise, and environmental concerns. District Bylaw Officers can and do attend many unauthorised campsites in order to enforce bylaws.” In correspondence, the District also added that: “Camping on municipal streets or municipal or private parking lots in the District is not permitted under any circumstances.”
From Peter Winter: DO NOT CAMP ALONG THE MAMQUAM FSR BETWEEN THE HIGHWAY AND THE BRIDGE THAT CROSSES STAWAMUS RIVER. THIS MEANS NO VAN CAMPING OR TENTS. THIS AREA IS BC PARKS AND IT IS ILLEGAL FOR YOU TO DO SO. THIS HAS BECOME A VERY SENSITIVE ISSUE. THERE IS FREE CAMPING AT THE CHEK CLIMBING AREA AND NEW, CHEAP CAMPING HERE.
P1 (10d): Use some fancy footwork to finesse a seam past two bolts until a reachy move secures a great finger lock. Continue up easy crack to a 3rd bolt and trend hard left to the anchors (same ones as those of Survival Enhancement). 20m
P2 (11b): Climb easy cracks for about 40' until you can clip a bolt in white, smooth rock. Make a tough move through a small roof and continue up on good finger locks to a 2nd, larger roof. This roof is actually easier than the first - there is a rusty old pin under the overhang but a huge jug allows you to place a bomber cam over the roof. Another 20' of easy climbing gets you to the anchor (35m)
P3 (10a): Continue up the crack as it trends left, eventually it peters out and a bolt protects a face move to the anchors. The guidebook has this pitch at 10d but there is no way....it is 10a at the most. (25m).
P4 (10a): move right from the station and climb past 4 bolts to the top. 10m
Descent: either walk off to the north or locate the anchor atop Centrefold and rap as for that route
